There are four companies that dominate the cable tie industry. We are
the smallest of the four, but we think we make the best product and
provide the best service. In fact, there was an independent study that
was done that supports that statement.
What is your biggest-selling cable tie?
7-inch tie is the biggest seller. We sell 400 million a year. Our sizes
range from 7 inches to 48. The 48-inch tie is made for the air
conditioning industry. We sell about 36 million of those a year.
Somebody in the air conditioning industry once asked me why we didn’t
make a 48-inch tie, so we did. Before we manufactured that length, they
were using duct tape and metal wiring.
Do you test your cable ties to make sure they are strong, dependable and easy to use?
have a Quality Control Department that performs three tests to
determine flexibility, ease of insertion and overall strength. We strive
for the highest tensile strength with the lowest insertion force.
Underwriters Laboratories sets the standard strength for the industry
and we’re often twice that strength, so it’s a dependable tie.... view this document
